    Good Jazz Fusion album from Bandcamp. If you are into electronic keyboards then you might enjoy it. Solid drum playing and other good stuff.

    Sometimes bands makes music you relate to, you simply did not expect them to relate.

    Best way to ensure a less stressful morning IME. Not bad at bedtime either. It's got the kind of sound that puts the eternal kid in you at peace.

    As a guitarist, his phrasing is super-weird and fascinating to me. It's just very atypical for a guitarist to have that sort of cadence and spread. The technique involved is impractically difficult without some kind of exotic setup... and beyond that, it's not intuitive to someone who has learned to play properly and efficiently. You wouldn't think to try and pull it off... not if you want to capitalize on the strengths of a guitar.

    The proliferation of extended range guitars definitely opened the door for styles like this. People think they're silly and impractical... but if anything they make a lot of things that wouldn't be practical to do on a normal 6 much more intuitive and doable. In the right hands you get some interesting sounds and ideas.

    I dunno much about him, but I'd almost guess he was trained on piano for most of his life... that would explain a lot of his melodic and rhythmic choices. Just... the chord voicings he chooses, the specific ways he utilizes counterpoint, and even the melodies he puts over top of these progressions through that fancy hybrid tapping/finger style thing he does. It all just sounds so much like it was written for piano. It has the kinds of touches you'd expect someone very comfortable with instrument would naturally reach for. Even the tone he chooses has some of the same properties of a piano, and he uses it like a pianist. The softened attack with a little bit of glassy sheen combined with the gobs of release, sustain and reverb make chords especially drop and hang like sustained notes on a piano. When I hear those bobbing counterpoint sections I picture hands bouncing across piano keys.

    Not too many people pull off that style of playing. I've seen a lot of guys who are crazy good at legato and tapping make things that sound like piano on guitar, but it's usually a lot more wank, and a lot less fun. They just sound like they're trying too hard. It's convincingly piano-like, but you still feel like you're hearing guitar. Like it's being abused into acting like it's something it isn't. This, I know is a guitar, but I feel as though I'm hearing a piano - it invokes similar emotions. But it doesn't sound like a twisted bastardization of either instrument. It's much more developed in terms of nuance, texture, feel... things like that. The tactile freedom and sonic versatility of guitar meets the broad, encompassing compositional reach and controlled subtlety of piano. Maybe? Tough to put a finger on it.

    He's got a few little EP's like this out there. Interesting to delve into from a musical perspective - his approach is a learned and thoughtful one. Or you can just turn your brain off and enjoy the sounds of the notes, because it is such a pleasant and wholesome sound.

    One of my favourite mixes since I was 15/16 or so.

    Listening with Utopia and subpac out of GOv2. Very nice.
